My one-year-old daughter has a bladder tumor - can babies get bladder cancer?

Yes. There are two types of bladder cancer in babies but both are very rare: neuroblastoma and rhabdomyosarcoma. More common tumors are cysts, ureteroceles, and other congenital problems that usually require less intervention.
